Rico “Prince of Kickboxing” Verhoeven (40-9) competes on the Glory 11 Chicago card, in the Glory heavyweight championship tournament. Verhoeven will face Gokhan “The Turkish Rebel” Saki in the semi-final.
At 24 years old, Verhoeven has come a long way in a short period of time from young prospect to genuine talent. So far in Glory, Verhoeven has gone 3-1, earning wins over Errol Zimmerman, Jhonata Diniz and Sergey Kharitonov, while his lone loss was to Semmy Schilt.
Verhoeven will have a huge challenge on his hands against Saki at Glory 11. Can the prince pull off the upset or will he will fall to a Turkish Rebellion?
